Hi,thanks for query.Please do not worry.You have gain about 8 kgs in pregnancy,that is good.Growth of the baby is a continuous process,most of the development takes place in the initial weeks.You are doing fine,just keep follow up with your doctor on regular basis,as per need you may asked to go for ultrasound to know about fetal well being.Take healthy diet as you are taking and continue your routine day to day to activity.
wishing you good health,regards,dr.pragnesh
